Fallout 4 Launch Trailer!

Power ArmorWe’re officially on the eve of Fallout 4! Excited? Well let’s get that hype up because Bethesda released a brand new launch trailer for the game!

Based on the trailer, it seems once you awake in the real world, there are some trust issues between humans and synthezoids and issues between factions and cities…next to your usual Deathclaw here and your Super Mutant there. It’s too early to tell but it’ll be worth the wait to see what happens!

Fallout 4 releases on November 10, 2015 for  Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC.

The campaign features actors and actresses, such as Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Man Of Steel), Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, Oculus), and Seattle Seahawk’s running back, Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch.

To those who still have their last gen consoles, such as the Playstation 3 or XBOX 360, hate to be the bearer of bad news but there will not be a campaign mode.

Fighter Squadron, Star Wars Battlefront’s New Mode Revealed!

A-Wings vs Tie FightersIt’s been awhile since we had a true and authentic flight simulator Star Wars game but at this past GamesCom 2015 in Germany last week, Electronic Arts revealed a new mode for Star Wars Battlefront called Fighter Squadron.

You remember the Rogue Squadron series? For those who don’t, the series lets you take the mantle of infamous ships such as the T-65 X-Wing to the X1 Tie Advanced.You fly these ships as you complete objectives against the Empire or Rebel Alliance, and compete in dogfights in space or various planets.

For Fighter Squadron mode, DICE is bringing that same feeling back from the past Rogue Squadron games but with up to 20 in a lobby for intense ship to ship battles. During matches, power-ups and upgrades come into play to give you advanced proton torpedoes or giving you the ability to pilot the Millennium Falcon!

Star Wars: Battlefront hits Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC on November 17th, 2015.

My E3 2015 Top Five!

e3_2014_nintendo_predictions_rumors_news

E3 2015, oh how alluring in concept, but lackluster in delivery. My E3 2015 Top Five was actually surprisingly easy to make because there were very few games that WOWed me that haven’t already been teased or announced. I feel E3 this year definitely didn’t have as much get up & go as last year, but E3 as a whole right now isn’t what I’m here to write about. Let’s look at the brighter picture & talk about 5 wonderful things that I enjoyed at E3 2015 (in no particular order):

E3 2015 TOP 5!

2887327-screen+shot+2015-06-16+at+11.15.28+am

Project Setsuna

Project Setsuna was one of the key revival factors in Square Enix’s abysmal conference. Project Setsuna, only teased a minute or two, showcased out-of-this-world backdrops & a gorgeous soundtrack. Currently in production by Tokyo RPG Factory, this title looks to deliver an RPG experience for the ages! It’s definitely a must-buy for me just from the first-look alone.

Anno 2205

Although very scarce on details, Anno 2205‘s trailer speaks bounds! A game about the exploration of space & colonizing the Moon, Anno 2205 could definitely be a game worth its salt in the upcoming year!

paperjambros

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam

Even though this isn’t a brand new IP & follows along in the Super Mario RPG line of games; I’m always a sucker for how Nintendo seems to bring the characters with the Mario franchise into a whole new light, incorporating wacky, over-the-top antics with our two favorite video game brothers. With two different styles of Mario juxtaposed together; this new Mario RPG is sure to give us an experience unlike any of the other RPGs before it. This game was definitely a pleasant surprise & a breath of fresh air in the Nintendo conference.

Hitman: Blindsight

Agent 47 is at it again, with even more new ways to kill than ever before! It’s something about the thrill of the hunt, solid executions, the free range of Hitman that speaks to me. December 8th, look out everybody… I’m coming for you!

microsoft-hololens-release-price

And last but certainly not least isn’t even a game… it’s Microsoft’s new gadget: the Microsoft HoloLens. Just from the special display rig done for Minecraft alone during Microsoft’s E3 conference, Microsoft HoloLens is a DAY ONE buy for me. I can only imagine the potential it has to enhance the visual interface and overall experience with video games. Microsoft HoloLens not only appeals to the hardcore gamers, but casuals as well. Free range of view, movement & control…a world literally at my fingertips & command!  Virtual reality, you gotta love it!

~And that as they say is that! Look out for all these games and more when they make their way to stores in the coming months (except Project Setsuna… no idea when that hits, but i’ll be waiting).

Top Five From E3 2015: Editor In Chief Edition

This year’s E3 2015 had a ton of great titles. Some of them coming out soon, others without even a single release date. My only challenge was to pick five out of the thousands of titles that were shown at this year’s showcase, and here they are in no particular order.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands

The tactical third person shooter from the series is back, but taking a brand new twist in the series. Instead of going through chapters, the entire game will be open world based, almost anything can happen. Setting place in Bolivia, you are part of a four man squad, issued to take down a drug operation that’s effecting the entire government. It’s up to you and your team on how you want to take them down. For example, you can go in guns blazing or you can take them down quietly. For each choice you make, you can see the consequences that follow for the drug operations as they quietly break apart from the inside, giving you a complete advantage from time to time. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands has no specific release date but will be for Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC.

Fallout 4

After years of playing Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it’s FINALLY here. Fallout 4 takes place in Boston, Massachusetts. You play as the Lone Wanderer from Vault 111, waking up from cryogenic sleep 200 years after the A-Bomb hits. As you leave the Vault, you explore post-apocalyptic landscapes, surviving wave after wave of mutated enemies, and for the first time in the series, you can customize your weapons and make your own settlements. XBOX One owners can also play with user created mods and have a free copy of Fallout 3. Fallout 4 comes out on November 10th, 2015 for the Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

It seems that Guerrilla Games is stepping out of it’s Killzone shell and giving us something new. Horizon: Zero Dawn is a brand new open world RPG. Taking place after our time and back to the stone age, technology has taken over the lands and replaced wildlife with machines. Not much is being said about Horizon: Zero Dawn, however it’s reported that this game will be released next year for the Playstation 4.

Star Wars Battlefront

It’s been a long time since Pandemic Studios was shut down and the leaks of both photos and videos of Star Wars Battlefront 3. Since then, LucaArts was bought my Disney and there was no hope of a third installment…until now. Electronic Arts will take the helm in making a brand new Star Wars Battlefront, and since last year’s E3 tease, we’ve been dying to see some actually gameplay. So far, the game looks promising, featuring a coop-mode which can be played online and off, and a 40 player online mode. Want to win the Battle of Hoth and lose the Battle of Endor? Now’s your chance! Star Wars Battlefront is released on November 17th, 2015 for the Playstation 4, XBOX One, and PC.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

This game has been pushed back long enough, but by the looks of it, it’s worth the wait. The final installment of the Uncharted series takes place three years after the events of the third game, Drake’s Deception. Teaming up with his long lost brother Sam, Drake and his brother go on a quest to go behind the conspiracy of a long lost pirate colony, while on the way, being pursued by another rival treasure hunters. The game will also bring back competitive multiplayer, which was last seen back in Uncharted 2. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End releases next year on the Playstation 4. Can’t wait but want an easy way to catch up with the series? No problem! This October 7th, pick up the Uncharted Collection on the Playstation 4, featuring all three of the original games. Oh, did we also mention that it does come with an Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta Pass?

Honorable Mention: Gears Of War Ultimate Collection/Gears Of War 4

I don’t have an XBOX One yet, but besides the Halo franchise, I am a huge fan of Gears Of War. As of this moment, the Gears Of War Ultimate Collection Beta is going on and a lot of fans are pretty impressed and enjoying themselves at the moment. With the Gears Of War Ultimate Collection coming out this August 25th on the XBOX One, The Coalition Studios surprised everyone this past E3 2015 at the Microsoft Press Conference with a small glimpse of Gears Of War 4. It will be interesting to see how lead game director Rod Fergusson will be at the helm now since creator Cliff Bleszinski stepped down to focus on his own studio, Boss Key Productions. Am I nervous? No, because so far it’s looking great. Gears Of War 4 is expected to be released next year on XBOX One and PC.

My Top 5 Games at E3!

FIFA-16-To-Be-Announced-In-June-2015-At-E3

Hey everyone Kiara Starr here! E3 2015 was really great this year, wasn’t it? Microsoft really won my vote this year and I hardly play anything that Microsoft offers, surprising I know! There was some disappointment and awkward moments but that was overlooked with awesome upcoming games. My list is pretty long so I’m just going to break it down to my top 5 (in no particular order).

The radio has gone silent on PATHOS-2. As isolation bears down on the staff of the remote research facility, strange things are happening.

Machines are taking on human traits and alien constructions have started to interfere with routine. The world around them is turning into a nightmare.

The only way out is to do something unimaginable.— Fictional Games 

tom_clancy_s___the_division_wallpaper_by_ashish913_by_ashish913-d6gkbgu2. The Division

We live in a complex world. The more advanced it gets, the more vulnerable it becomes. We’ve created a house of cards: remove just one, and everything falls apart.

Black Friday – a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, these agents are trained to operate independently in order to save society.

When society falls, we rise.— Ubisoft

London is a post-apocalyptic wasteland with no law and no order, it’s time to call in the mercenaries, as you battle it out for riches and bragging rights. Work together or die alone in the most challenging team-based FPS.— Nexon

rockband414. Rock Band 4

Rock Band 4 offers the unique social play of a full band experience—featuring a next-gen microphone, wireless drums and guitar, a revamped world tour campaign mode, and new immersive ways to keep the party going with friends and family.

Add your personal signature to every performance! With Freestyle Guitar Solo, you can string together blistering licks and wow the crowd with your own legendary solos.

With a soundtrack featuring some of the world’s biggest acts, plus an ever-expanding catalog of over 1,500 playable songs, it’s easy to put together a killer set list.— Harmonix

Rise-of-the-Tomb-Raider5. Rise of The Tomb Raider

Conquer a world fiercely protecting its secrets, endure perilous conditions and unstable landscapes, face dangerous wildlife that act as guardians to ancient tombs, and explore huge interactive environments.

Explore huge ancient spaces littered with deadly traps, solve dramatic environmental puzzles, and decipher ancient texts to reveal crypts as you take on a world filled with secrets to discover.

Use the environment to your advantage, scale trees and dive underwater to avoid or takedown enemies, configure Lara’s gear, weapons, and ammo to suit your play style, craft explosives on the fly to sow chaos, and wield Lara’s signature combat bows and climbing axe.— Microsoft, Crystal Dynamics

There you have it! There was plenty to choose from, but these in particular really caught my eye. Make sure you check out these games when they hit the shelves (you know I will).

Fallout 4 Anyone?

fallout-4Bethesda Softworks press conference last night wasn’t going to be complete without their flagship franchise Fallout 4, and they didn’t forget that. The presentation went on last, but was far from least. Let’s jump right in shall we?


Fallout-4-female-characterThere wasn’t a whole lot they would share about the story. One thing they did though was start at the beginning before the actual apocalypse. You do get to customize your character extensively; all the way to the sex of the character (and all in front of a bathroom mirror). After you set up your character you get the Vault-Tec rep to let you know you’ve been pre-approved for a slot in Vault-111. You do have to answer some questions, which is really where you assign your skill points on the familiar S.P.E.C.I.A.L. interface. This is where they don’t give away the story as they skip about 200 years and emerge from your vault where your wife (or husband) and child are gone leaving you the only survivor. And now you can do whatever you want.


fuselageThe Creation engine is what drives the inner workings of the game giving players a surreal experience. The environment looks just as vast and free as it has in the past and small things like switching between first and third-player is now a thing you can utilize throughout the game. Your k-9 companion is also introduced and he’s there to show you why they call him “man’s best friend”. You can command him to retrieve items, distract enemies, and such by using a simple point-and-shoot command prompt. You even get a look at VATS and some of what he can do, but it looks like they want to keep a bit of that secret. (can’t show em’ everything right?)

The classic Pip-Boy interface makes a glorious return with a better layout that allows for navigation. The game cartridges for it are now retrievable by finding them along your journey… and they work. In fact, the games resemble that of “classic” Donkey King and Missile Defense.

Fallout-4-Screenshots-642x250What might serve as the most important feature of the game is the comprehensive crafting system which allows you to utilize all that junk that is usually worthless and recycle them for raw resources (talk about one mans trash being another mans treasure huh?).

Now for the weapons which you’ll have about 50 base types of with 700 mods to choose from. You can also make and customize that all to familiar Power Armour at an absurd rate. But the weapons and the armour are just the tip of the iceberg. The big reveal was that now you can create houses, bases; really erect an entire moving communities and customize them to their finest details. Weaponry, using Brhamin caravans to move goods and resources, all of it is yours to do what you will.

There was a lot of care and attention that went into this project. Four years this game has been in the making. For those of you who don’t know, that is essentially the time between Fallout 3 and the upcoming title. Speaking of the upcoming title, you will get your hands on Fallout 4 sooner rather than later… November 10 of THIS YEAR to be exact.
